organization met on Tuesday nights at 7:30, although we are planning
no further meetings in the fall.
We were one of the sponsors for a panel on war crimes by the Bush
administration in early May:
Speaking the Unspeakable
Is the Bush Administration
Guilty of Torture and War Crimes?
Thursday, May 4, 7:30pm

This spring, we hosted a visit by the 1960s activist David Harris,
former stanford Student Body President and founder of Resistance.
We also organized two open meetings to build broader community
participation against the war.
In past years, we collected articles about the war from a variety of
sources. A list of those resources is available
In the time leading up to the start of the war in 2003, Stanford Faculty
Against the War engaged in the following activities:
- Sponsored a Stanford Daily ad encouraging students to attend the
march in San Francisco on October 26, 2003
(PDF text of ad)

lifelong activist, to talk about his experiences organizing on campus
against the Vietnam War
